When arriving into the world of Twitter in 2009, one of the first followers that Stuart started tweeting was an independent film maker on a crowd funding mission to make a new brand of Zombie cinematic feature film "Invasion Of The Not Quite Dead".

A twitter-friendship grew to the inevitable point where a real life meeting had to happen sometime. On his return to the UK from working in New Zealand, Stuart and AD met up in London for a real-time catch up.
